The XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-13 package has been updated in the Cygwin


1) Merge NativeGDI development branch.  The NativeGDI engine is now
accessible via the "-engine 16" command-line parameter.  Note that the
byte order for 1-bit bitmaps is only configurable at compile time,
which causes the output to be totally messed up.  Although, you can at
least examine how the engine currently works.  (Alan Hourihane)

2) Display the argument to the -query option in the window title.
(Alexander Gottwald)

3) winprefslex.l - Remove use_unused_functions(), which was only used
to force two functions to be imported, thus eliminating a compiler
warning.  This is no longer needed with the newest test version of
flex.  (Earle F Philhower III)

4) - Define HasExpat as YES.  This adds a dependency on
Cygwin's expat lib, but it removes the distribution of an out of date
version of expat that was included with the XFree86 source code.
(Gerrit P. Haase, Harold L Hunt II, Alexander Gottwald)

5) Fix the occasional repeating of keystrokes in the xkb layer.  This
problem has been present in XFree86 for years, but it was more
apparent on Cygwin/XFree86.  This patch is not yet in the XFree86 CVS
tree, so any bugs caused by this patch will need to be reported to
XFree86.  See the following email for a description of how the patch
works <a

6) General - Add runtime detection for the Cygwin IPC Daemon.  This
allows SHM (shared memory) support when the IPC Daemon is running.
SHM support is automatically disabled, with no adverse effect, when
the IPC Daemon is not running.  There is now a dependency on the
cygipc package, but no additional installation steps are required,
unless you want SHM support; in which case you need to run ipc-daemon2
(See the cygipc documentation for more details).  (Ralf Habacker,
Harold L Hunt II)

7) - Ditch "-DNO_ALLOCA" and replace with
"-DINCLUDE_ALLOCA_H" for AllocateLocalDefines.  (Nicholas Wourms)

XawI18nDefines.  (Nicholas Wourms)

9) General - Recompile all libraries and executables for run-time
enabled shared memory support (SHM).  (Harold L Hunt II)

10) General - Recompile all libraries and executables for Cygwin
   1.5.3+.  (Harold L Hunt II)

11) X11.tmpl, cygwin.rules - Fix some warnings about undefined symbols
during cross compilation.  (Harold L Hunt II)
